The City of Angels is the latest to consider adoption of Fair Workweek legislation with three city councilors filing a motion to enact fair workweek legislation last week. Council President Herb Wesson, along with Councilors Curren Price and Paul Koretz, announced the filing at a press conference last Friday. The motion, which was referred to the Economic Development Committee and will be heard within the next 45 days, calls for the city to draft a proposal to require retail employers provide written and posted work schedules at least two weeks in advance for retail employees. It also seeks to grant retail employees the right to request a flexible schedule and to decline hours without penalty or retaliation. Furthermore, the proposal will provide for predictability pay in the event a schedule is changed within that 14 day notice period, stipulate a right to rest and grant workers access to additional hours. It is expected that a formal ordinance will be drafted and submitted by the end of the year. If adopted, Los Angeles would join a number of other California communities with fair workweek laws on the books.
